  • 06/02/14--09:40: Free Summer Logos…
  • I like branding things we do, and our summer ministry is so different that we brand it to show it is a separate program. If you want to brand an event or program, but don’t want to design or pay a designer to create a logo, check out these links for some cool, modern badge logos. […]

    As I continue to love on students and family through pastoral care, there are some things that I’ve had to become knowledgeable about. Because students and their families are dealing with these issues and in order for me to really care for them, I need to educate myself. So I thought I’d share few of the […]

    Lately, it seems as if there have been a lot of blogs, leadership articles and even quotes from Navy seals going around talking about how our fear of failure is the only thing that holds us back. I have even read a lot lately about those who “failed” and tried again, the likes of Walt […]

    I used to sit up late at night and be the biggest sucker of late night infomercials. It was a problem. Every infomercial I watched made me believe that I could change the world if I sent in my 4 easy installments of $19.99. There have been 3 of them that I actually sent away […]

  • 06/04/14--13:26: How do you teach the gospel?
  • This post is really about asking a question. Or, maybe two questions. Well, okay, three. Anyways… The first question tends to be pretty simple for us to answer: When you think of the “gospel message” what do you think about? How do you articulate the gospel? I would encourage you to STOP here and mentally think […]

    I love my wife. She’s the real deal, whether in one moment she’s genuinely at the top of everything on her list, or in the next moment pausing to find her footing before it all implodes. She isn’t “the pastor’s wife” – she’s my wife, and I happen to be a pastor. Imagine how hard […]

  • 06/05/14--09:34: Starbucks Surprised Me
  • I go to Starbucks every morning; I’m like an old man stuck in his routine. It’s where I read, write, think, pray and drink 2.00 tea that I could make at home for 25 cents. Today, after ordering my tea I headed over to the condiment counter to add some milk and sugar. To my […]

    It’s no question that we have “orphans” in our culture, and it’s obvious that caring for orphans (and widows) was not a suggestion for Christians. But it’s also no question that most of us have no idea of what life is like for them. This video, however, will change that.  Watch this because it may […]

    “I mean, come-on. Can’t someone step up?” This was the sentiment expressed to me recently by a small church youth leader who was looking for volunteers. Not for the mission trip. Not for summer camp chaperones. Not for VBS. Not for any major ask like that. They were looking for drivers to drive the 17 members […]

      A couple of years ago everything on television was “EXTREME!”  It marked an era of radical transformation. About a decade or so ago my family and I made the choice to move into the community where we serve. For many this is a no brainer, the people in your church live in your neighborhood. […]

  • 06/06/14--17:33: I Wish We’d All Been Ready
  • Nicolas Cage. A movie where he has an excuse to panic while yelling… or yell while panicking… and then… intensely whisper. Christian themes that even Christians will argue about. Did I mention NICOLAS CAGE?  The dude is flying a plane where people on it suddenly disappear. Folks, it just got real. This film (a remake of the […]

    Common Sense Media did a survey of over 1,000 13  to 17 year olds on how they are communicating these days. They found: 90% have used social media. Everyday: 68 % Text, 51% use social sites 52% believe using social media and text helps their friendships and 32% believe it helps with family. Only 4% […]

    TV suspends reality. When someone gets playfully thrown into a swimming pool on TV, all I can do is worry if they have their cell phone in their pocket… because they obviously don’t. Maybe I think about these things too much. It’s why I dream about a TV Special called “Wizard Fight” where David Copperfield, David […]

    Early in ministry I tried to do everything and not put anything extra on our volunteers. I quickly found that volunteers needed direction and some goals to aim at. When you have a goal, you know what’s expected of you and you aim to hit that target. Help your leaders succeed and give them some […]

  • 06/11/14--08:04: The Ultimate Senior Prank
  • Make your mark. That’s the typical mantra teenagers are told on their way out of high school. Some students, apparently, already know this lesson. Take, for example, the senior class of the Santa Barbara Unified School District. They didn’t just want to settle for the usual class prank. Instead, they hired a Mariachi band to follow their […]

      We have been or currently are in the throes of graduations galore. Hats are thrown in the air, celebrations had, and gifts given. Then it’s over, but it’s not. The pomp and circumstance has died away, but students are still in a waiting space for the future to arrive. Sure they have stuff to […]
